#BackToBasics Devo - Mark 13-16
Mark 13 - The first warning that Jesus gives about the end times is a warning against deception. I also love the encouragement to allow the Holy Spirit to speak through me during difficult times instead of leaning on my own premeditated speeches.
Mark 14 - The story of the perfume being poured over Jesus (and Jesus' reaction to the disciples) reminds me to value time & intimacy with Jesus over working for Jesus. Someone will always need help and we can help them whenever we want.
Mark 15 - The temple curtain was torn from top to bottom at the death of Jesus. His sacrifice gave us full and unhindered access to God.
Mark 16 - Jesus' disciples did just as Jesus did. They preached and demonstrated the kingdom with signs and wonders by the same Spirit.
